I love science. I love data. I love coding. I live at the intersection of Design and Technology.
I am an artist, designer and programmer. My interests are diverse, but concentrate around nature inspired design. I love algorithmic art, generative systems, data visualization, creative coding, bio computation and digital fabrication.
I am currently an MFA candidate in the Parsons Design and Technology program, an interdisciplinary world where technology, design and art collide.
I hold a B.A. in Physics from Barnard College of Columbia University and an M.A. in Statistics from Columbia University.
I began my career working as a research analyst in Astrophysics. During my tenure at NASA, Ames Research Center, I worked in a global effort to construct SOFIA, an airborne infrared astronomy observatory aboard a Boeing 747 aircraft. I have also worked at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory studying the Cosmic Microwave Background and, funded by the National Science Foundation, at the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center studying star formation in extra-galactic molecular clouds.
I spent more than five years working on Wall Street bridging the world of quants and sales to implement quantitative methods for trading strategies and portfolio analysis. I worked first at Goldman Sachs in Equity Prime Brokerage and, later, at JP Morgan on the Foreign Exchange, Rates and Commodities sales desk. I also completed a summer internship at Brevan Howard US Asset Management.
In 2011 I left Wall Street to pursue a more creative and purpose-driven life. I spent a year traveling, practicing yoga, and doing a lot of soul searching. I later joined the Cue Group: a small, management consulting company, think-tank, insight laboratory, and hub of cultural anthropologists. The Cue Group helps businesses understand how their products fit into the ever changing landscape of the 21st century marketplace. I served as the Director of Analytics and focused on data strategies and analytics.
Today I have a broad set of interests such as creative coding, bio design and data visualization.
